Babangida receives Atiku in Minna

Babangida receives Atiku in Minna”

Minna - Atiku Abubakar was in Minna, on Thursday, on what the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) described as 'a purely private visit'.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar reportedly failed to impress former President Ibrahim Babangida in his quest for IBB's blessings to enable him (Atiku) contest the 2019 Presidential election.

He arrived the Uphill residence of the former military leader at about 12:40 PM and is now holding a meeting with General Babangida.

Atiku who recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People's Democratic Party (PDP) met behind closed doors with Babangida only to emerge with stone face after an hour and half.

It is unclear if the Ex-head of state will attend the party Convention holding on Saturday.

Some 45 minutes later, Aliyu left the meeting, leaving only the visitor and his host in the sitting room.

The former Vice President said in a press statement signed by his media office in Abuja on Friday that he, as an advocate of internal democracy in a political party system, believes all the aspirants for respective elective positions in the PDP National Executive Council (NEC) are eminently qualified.

"Atiku is a Nigerian, he is allowed to go to any party and our constitution allows it, so, it is not new and there is nothing wrong for politician to move from one party to another".

"I wish all members and leaders of our great party, the PDP a successful national convention just as I wish all the aspirants luck in their endeavors", Atiku said.
